Testors Custom Automotive Laquers

However, that theory was shot to hell when I laid the color coat on the body this afternoon. The paint crazed something wicked on this body and has rendered it useless. I now have another parts kit to add to the collection. :x
What kind of luck have y'all had with this line of spraypaint? My luck with it has been absolutely terrible and I'm wondering if it isn't the pastic these kits are being molded in now rather than the paint. I am open to any and all suggestions at this point.

Cannot say I have had those problems. I have even sprayed the new Testors paints on the new soft Revell plastic with no crazing. Maybe it was your application methods? Don't know maybe someone else can shed some light. Typically I'd spray two or three light coats then a heavy coat or two depending on the coverage I need. Anyway, dont give up just yet...

Don't toss the kit into the parts bin! The body should strip just fine with CSC or oven cleaner. Especially since the laquer is fresh.

imo while the testors laquers are a big step over their enamels, they still play a distant second fiddle to tamiya as far as coverage, nozzle design and ease of use.

Get some Polly S Easy Lift Off.
I`ve had trouble with stripping Testors Laquers with CSC of late. Had to end up using Brake Fluid.
It will work on ANY paint.
